Announcement: A new health service for the Grampians

The boards of Edenhope and District Memorial Hospital, Stawell Regional Health, Wimmera Health Care Group and Ballarat Health Services have welcomed the Victorian Government’s approval for the health services to come together as one.

The new health service called Grampians Health will officially commence on 1 November 2021, following years of strong collaboration and close partnerships between the four health services.

Following the Minister’s approval, Grampians Health will embark on an inclusive service planning process, defining a shared vision and future, while retaining local ownership and identity.

With the support of a dedicated project team with experts from across the four health services, we will be talking to staff, volunteers, patients and residents to continue to understand local needs, while continuing high quality care.

On day one of the new health service, there will be no significant changes to how each health service is run day-to-day. Over the coming months and into 2022 we will work together to develop a clinical services plan that will address the unique needs of each community.
